After talking to a Minimed rep, I have discovered to get started on their pump I will need approximately $1650 which will also include 3 months supplies. I currently have a $750 deductible with Guess I will be waiting a while. Not sure what to think really now. I may get an estimate from Omnipod just to see.

Either way I may be continuing to with multiple shots for some time until I can at least cover my deductible. Maybe in the mean time there will be a cure!

I honestly wouldn't be hesitant about the deductable. My deductable was in the $750's with Minimed, but Minimed had worked with me on that amount of the deductable. An arangment was setup to make $50.00 or whatever payments that work for you a month till the deductable was paid for, in which didn't interfer with getting the supplies that were needed.

I had looked at the deductable amount that I owed and was also like, I'm better on shots that the pump. Hope this helps you.
